This past weekend, Co-Optimus and hundreds of other organizations teamed together to generate roughly 2 million dollars to the Children’s Miracle Network through the 2012 Extra Life fundraiser.

This is one of those news posts that has that meta co-op element to it along side a real co-op element.  If it's been a while since you've played some Halo Reach, you might want to jump back in, as this year marks the 6th year for the Halo FLAG tournament.  Fight Like a Girl is a charity fund raising tournament where players compete against each via Xbox Live and raise money for Breast Cancer and Cervical Cancer research.

The Humble Indie Bundle was first released last year as an experiment of sorts.  A few independent PC developers got together and released their games, DRM free, for a name your price sale that not only supported them - but various charities like Child's Play.  A second bundle was released a few months later continuing the tradition and success, but today marks the first time that a publisher has gotten on board with the unique approach.

You're running harder than you ever have before. You can hear yourself panting and the crunch of your boots on the snow-covered gravel. Snowflakes fall peacefully, a stark contrast to the close-quarters battle at hand. Death could be around the next corner. Toss a flashbang, or not? The sound would give you away, but you can't risk letting the enemy have the element of surprise. If there's someone waiting for you to step into their crosshairs, they'll put you down for sure. You hear the chatter of gunfire somewhere behind you and to your left. Two frag grenades can be heard exploding, and then relative quiet. It's enough of a distraction that you make your move, and dash around the corner-- only to stop in your tracks at the sight of two enemy combatants. One raises his rifle at you. Your breath catches in your chest. Your heart stops.

In simplest terms, co-op is just a bunch of people working together towards a common goal.  And while the latest Lost Planet 2 demo is a versus only affair, simply downloading it gets Capcom one step closer to donating $20,000 dollars to charity.
